Contract law governs the enforceability of legal promises. The fundamental requirements for forming a binding contract are an offer, acceptance, and consideration. To be enforceable, a contract must be formed by competent parties who give their consent to a legal agreement. A contract that ends up greatly benefiting one party at the expense of the other is not in itself illegal so long as the parties agreed to the terms knowingly and willingly. While it may not be necessary to have an attorney present to review every contract, for those really important contracts an attorney’s experience and expertise work to ensure that your rights a being protected and you are getting all that you bargained for.

Filing for bankruptcy is one of the most important financial decisions you can make. Living under the burden of overwhelming debt can be a stressful and emotionally draining experience, and it’s important to have competent counsel to help consumers successfully navigate their situation. Bankruptcy laws help people who can no longer pay their creditors get a fresh start – by liquidating assets to pay their debts or by creating a repayment plan. Bankruptcy laws also protect troubled businesses and provide for orderly distributions to business creditors through reorganization or liquidation. In addition, we can help you use bankruptcy to stop home foreclosures, vehicle repossession, creditor harassment, bank garnishments, and wage garnishments.
Estate planning is the preservation and the distribution of your assets, both during your life and upon your death. It is accomplishing your personal and family goals and easing the management of your financial and legal affairs, as well as minimizing taxes if your estate is large enough for taxes to be of concern. When we talk about an estate, we mean all assets of any value that you own, including real property, business interests, investments, insurance proceeds, personal property and even your personal effects. An “estate plan,” generally, refers to the means by which your estate is passed on to your loved ones on your death. Estate planning can be accomplished through a variety of methods, including:
- Revocable Living Trusts
- Last Will and Testament / Probate
- Lifetime Gifting
- Joint Ownership
- Beneficiary Designations
- Life Estates
- Durable Power of Attorney
- Living Will
Problems often arise when people don’t coordinate all of these methods of passing on their estate. If you have a well-drafted estate plan in place, you will ensure that your estate passes to whom you want, when you want, and is carried out in the manner you’ve chosen. You can rest assured that your family won’t have to endure the public process and costly matter of probate. The government won’t be able to take what you’ve spent a lifetime building. But you need to be aware of the many options that exist in estate planning – and you must choose your estate planning attorney wisely.
